The Lucid Dream Announce Details Of New Album Actualisation One of the leading lights of UK psychedelia, Carlisle outfit The Lucid Dream have announced details of their eagerly awaited fourth album Actualisation, which is set for release on 19th October.

Drawing inspiration from Acid House, dub and Kosmische, the first fruits of the album were heard on storming Chicago House inspired track SX1000 released in March which recently won the approval of legendary producer Andrew Weatherall.

New single Alone In Fear is a nine-minute blast of confrontational techno-punk inspired by the anger and frustration of Brexit Britain that calls Primal Scream’s groundbreaking Exterminator album to mind.

Released through the band’s own label Holy are You Recordings, Actualisation is the follow up to the quartet’s highly acclaimed 2016 album Compulsion Songs and continues the band’s prolific run, becoming their fourth album in five years.
